We are still good even when working to better ourselves

Future looks greatThere can be a dark side of personal growth that can end up enhancing a sense of lack in our lives.  Doing personal growth work does not mean that there is something wrong with you.  Sure there may be some pain and bad habits going on, but that is not who you are, it is just how you feel or act.  This does not mean that there is anything wrong with you.  It does not mean that you are broken and need to be fixed.

Yes, even in pain or running bad habits you are still good. If you are seeking help then there is something inside of you that knows your worth already.  There is a place within all of us that knows that we should have happy and fulfilling lives.  That we should not be suffering, that there is a way for us to feel better.

Do yourself the favour of staying away from the dark and the pity and shame.  Listen to that part of you that feels worthy and deserving of all that you desire in your life.  Personal growth is about taking what we have and making it the best experience for ourselves.  It is not about feeling that we will only be good enough if we are a better version of ourselves. Remember to enjoy yourself and your life during the entire journey of your growth.

Your heart has a brain

Valentine heartThere is real truth in the advice to follow your heart.  There is as much intelligence scientifically in your heart as there is in your brain.  This is why there is such a wonderful part of us that knows the truth when we listen to our hearts.  This is where our desires lie, where our purpose lives and  where we can understand who we are.  It can be hard to listen to this somedays though.  It can be hard to feel one way, and be living a reality of another.

The shift that has to happen in your mind is to let go of the subconscious blocks.  The little voice inside your head that likes things the way they are.  That part of you that doesn’t want to change, that frankly sees change as something difficult.  Be kind to your subconscious.  Be kind to the dreams in your heart.  Let the two become friends, convince your subconscious that you have all that you need inside of you to change.  To live your dreams, to create your life just as you want it.

Keep listening, keep dreaming, keep practicing the change, and know that you have the ideas on how to do it.


Life Lemons

Three lemonsSometimes life is hard for no reason at all.  This is not the time to ask why do bad things happen to good people.  Or feel that you are being punished for not being a positive person.  There tends to be a lot of blame that can be cast on ourselves when we work with the Law of Attraction, or manifesting.

I love knowing that there are silver linings in our lives, there are ways to make those lemons into lemonade.  I am also happy to know that sometimes situations just cause pain, we are human and that is one of our emotions.  Don’t be so hard on yourself.  We all need some time to grieve, to hurt, and to heal.  That is OK, that is what makes us stronger, and gives us the chance to enjoy the good things in life a bit more. Not every moment is going to be great, or easy, or fun or something we want to celebrate.  Let those hard times be real, it is the quickest way to move throw the pain.

Sure things are going to be tough, and unforeseen things happen, so just roll with it.  Let it be what it is, take what you can from it and let it go.  Allow that to carry you forward in a new way, with a bit more grit and a sense that you can handle what life gives you.  Even on those tough days. Life lessons, life lemons, whatever you call them, if you give into it a bit, admit the pain, you have a chance of coming out the other side stronger. You have a chance to find the good in everything.

Gratitude is a gift

Gratitude really is a gift, however instead of seeing what it gives you, be sure to give it back.  It is no secret that feeling grateful is an instant mood booster, and a big part of personal growth systems all around.

However I think the real gift of gratitude is when you express that gratitude.  Tell the people that you are grateful for that you are in fact grateful for them.  Grateful for what they do for you, or how they enhance your life.  One of the biggest resentments in relationships is when someone feels taken for granted.  Telling each other why we are grateful for each other is a sure fire way to keep that resentment from building.

Keep everyone around you happy, and connected by telling them what they mean to you.  How they help and impact your life.  Try it and see how you can both feel wonderful!  More gratitude expressed will bring around more things to be grateful for.


The puzzle of I Am

Final Piece

When we choose to be ourselves, we can live as ourselves.  It is a Universal truth that we are here to be successful in whatever purpose this life has to offer.  So be you, live in your “I Am”.

I am abundance, or I am abundant.

I am happy, or I am happiness

I am Loved, or I am Love

I am healthy, or I am health

I am wealthy, or I am wealth

I am living my purpose

I am connected

I am enough

Stay in this state of I Am in order to be.  This state is only lost when we get caught up in the lack we perceive to have in the here and now.  There is a part of us that needs faith.  Keep the faith, and the vibration of I Am to live as you are.


Decide Already

If you want something, you have to decide to have it.

We often think we want something, but do so from a place of lacking it. When we decide that we want something, then it is already ours.

Think of all the times that you knew that you were going to do something. Then everything showed up to make it happen. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.  So get clear and decide tho live a certain way, or go on a certain adventure, or have the job you want because it is your purpose in life.

Whatever it is, make the decision to do it already;)

Stop Trying, and Just Be

Abstract Image

Yoda said “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”  and he couldn’t have been more right.

Stop trying to be something, or someone, and start being it.  Start being grateful, happy, abundant and full of love.  Start feeling that way all the time, not trying to.  Not trying to be in the pursuit of those things.  Just be them.

If you want something, have it.  See where it is already and be in that energy. Be in that place, be in that feeling.  That is what life is about, not trying, but being.

For my yogis out there, stop trying to do yoga, or trying out a pose, be in the pose.  Be a yogi.  Then you are and it doesn’t matter what anything looks like on the outside, you are in on the inside.

Fun, for the Fun of it

I like to have fun.  I really do.  I also stopped having fun for a while there, life was hard, then serious, then a struggle, then stressful.  It wasn’t much fun at all.  Truth was, I wasn’t any fun anymore, all those other emotions had taken over.  Back to creating from within, if I wasn’t fun, then there really wasn’t any fun I could create.

So, I changed that.  I decided to have fun whenever I wanted.  Where ever I wanted. I have fun all over the place now. For instance, I dance in my car to music I like, because it is more fun that way.  It’s cool if you see me having fun, I don’t mind.  I have fun in public all the time.  You may even look over one day and see my car dancing and laugh at me because it is is silly, or maybe you have forgotten to create your fun within so you may judge me a little for acting silly.  That is cool with me too, I don’t mind.  I think that the more fun I create within, and the more places I splash that fun around the better the chance that it will fall onto others.  I’m sharing the fun, for the sake of fun, and for the fun of it.




This little light of Mine…

There is a divine light within each of us that can never be harmed, it is always filled with happiness, love and success.  Even if you don’t like the Sunday school songs, this light is there.  It is part of the translation of Namaste, it is often said that someone lights up a room.  Or that they have a glow about them, these are usually happy and pleasant people to be around.

This light also has another purpose, this light is part of how we create what we want on the inside. Many of us forget about this light, or have never thought about it.  However it is always there, it is a big part of what I see in my energy work as well.  People have all sort of thoughts, emotions, limiting beliefs, and varying sizes of trauma.  However that light as I said before can never be harmed.  Due to this it is such a great source of healing for many people.  Sometimes we have to let the bad things go by allowing the good to come in and take over.

There is a lot of focus on clearing energy blocks, and I do see the good in that.  However I see even more good by bringing in the light.  I see better results by allowing the light, the happy feelings to be what convinces the hurt, or the block that things can be OK.  Sure some bad things may happen, sure sometimes things are tough, that is all true.  No need to pretend that it isn’t.  So why not make things easier and just turn on the light for the dark to feel a bit safer.  We could spend our entire lives clearing the bad, the hurt, the trauma, the limiting beliefs, but if there isn’t a positive emotional habit to take it’s place then there will be more things created in the “darker” area.

We should give ourselves a break, accept the bad things, and let your light be the part that can always shine on in-spite of it all.

Build your own happiness

Build your feelings of happiness, joy and love inside of you and allow them to pour out into the world.

We make our lives from within, with our own feelings and emotions vibrating out into the world.  It took me awhile to truly get this, but we are in charge of our own happiness.  It takes practice, so let today be one of those practice days.  Feel you have everything inside of you.  It is all created there.  Now just for today, let the fear of what may happen, the fear of the past fall away from you.  Give yourself that break, if only for today.
Share this with your friends, so that everyone around you is enjoying the same high joy vibrations.
To your happiness, and I do mean even the strange little things that make you happy that you don’t tell everyone about because somethings they are strange.  That’s cool, I’m all about letting the freak flag fly!
